Manchester United struck three times after half-time to overcome battling Burnley 3-0 at Old Trafford.

Dimitar Berbatov broke the deadlock just after the hour mark when his shot flicked off Michael Duff and flew past Brian Jensen.

Wayne Rooney added his 16th goal of the season shortly afterwards and substitute Mame Biram Diouf added another late on to leave new manager Brian Laws to reflect on the failure of both Steven Fletcher and David Nugent to convert golden opportunities when the game was still deadlocked.
